Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide turned the tables on a failed-journalist ex-con from Brooklyn who became obsessed and started threatening her, The Post has learned.
Melissa DeRosa — the governor’s right-hand staffer and a fixture at his famous COVID-19 updates — had been getting increasingly worrisome aggressive Twitter comments from an account for months before things escalated this past weekend, sources said.
That’s when DeRosa, 38, started getting phone calls on her personal cell — culminating with him calling her a “c–t” and saying, “I’m gonna slice your p—y, you murderer,” sources said.
“It’s a little bit unnerving,” the usually unflappable DeRosa admitted, according to a source familiar with the situation.
